The annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner was held last night. I recall attending this black tie event in years past, but this time I watched it online. This was a zoo atmosphere and the focus should be on journalism scholarships. Frankly, I preferred it when it was limited to politicians. journalists and media executives.

This Washington event has evolved into a Hollywood type party, where movie stars mingle with politicians and the president makes fun of both himself and his political opponents.

This 89th White House Correspondents’ Dinner had those attending and watching the comedic and political barbs agree that these were the most enjoyable moments of the event.
